Who Should Attend: Government, Military, and Industry at all levels who want to learn about the tenets and principles of contracting for digital and cybersecurity efforts to promote change and collaboration within DoD programs and projects.
Speaker: Ms. Jennifer Henderson
What is all the commotion about Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Cybersecurity Compliance? Why should I care and what can I do? Whether you realize it or not, acquisition professionals play a key role in ensuring the protection of the Department's sensitive information through DIB cybersecurity compliance. While there are required actions that must be taken such as ensuring the proper clauses are in the contracts and checking to make sure DIB self-assessments are recorded, we will explore some areas that are often overlooked and will aid in the overall understanding of cyber requirements application.
In 2019, the USD for Acquisition and Sustainment directed the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) to establish a capability to assess the DIB's ability to protect DoD's controlled unclassified information (CUI) in their non-federal information systems. The resulting organization is referred to as the Defense Industrial Base Cybersecurity Assessment Center (DIBCAC) whose strategic assessments verify the DIB's implementation of required cyber standards (NIST SP 800-171). We will discuss the DoD Assessment Methodology, the three types of assessments, where assessment results are stored, and how to interpret the results.
Note: This event is specially tailored for Contracting professionals; Contracting Officer's Representatives; Program Office Acquisition Professionals.
